Transcript of Preschool - WPK Campus

We make every Sunday a WIN by kids and Team members in Parkway Kids achieving 3 principles:
1. Have Fun!
2. Be Safe.
3. Grow Spiritually!
How does Parkway Kids participate in the mission statement of Parkway Fellowship to
the lost at any cost and
grow them to maturity
the kids by creating a kid friendly environment through music, movement, and visual stimulation. Our Team plays a part in helping
grow them to maturity
by teaching key Biblical concepts, and by partnering with parents to continue providing instruction for spiritual growth.
Which of the five Biblical purposes of Fellowship, Discipleship, Ministry, Evangelism, and Worship does this ministry fulfill?
Kids at this age connect to each other by playing together during free-play time.
The children learn key spiritual concepts through a DVD or live presentation and engaging activities.
Our Team ministers to parents by providing safe and welcoming environments for children, allowing parents the opportunity to focus on what God is teaching them.
: Several times during the year, kids are given invite cards and encouraged to bring their friends on Sunday mornings.
: Kids sing praise songs during Large Group time every Sunday.

What am I committing to as an Preschool Leader?
You are committing to an hour and a half on every Sunday that you are scheduled to serve.
Take time during the week to study your lesson for about 15 minutes.
Be in your classroom 15 minutes prior to your service time to prepare supplies and greet kids.
Remain in your class until the next team of volunteers arrive.
Once we have your background check information, preferred service time, and rotation schedule, we will place you on one of our teams. You will receive reminders regarding the time you are scheduled to serve from
Planning Center Services
. You can download the Planning Center Services app on your smartphone to have a quick reference for your scheduled service dates.
The Procedure
What do I do if I can't be there?
Notify Nancy Mullins by email/phone/text

Safety Guidelines
Dismissal Procedure
NO kid is allowed to leave without a matching tag. If the kid or the parent loses a tag, the parent must go to the Check In stations in the preschool area and get a signed replacement tag from a Parkway Kids Staff Member.
Parents will show their parent tag at check-out with a number that will match the number on the tag of the kid they are checking out.
Do not allow parents into the room during Check Out.
If a kid was dropped off with a car seat, DO NOT buckle the kid in their car seat. Pass the kids to their parents over the baby gate and then hand them the car seat separately.
Anyone under the age of 16 is
permitted to check a kid out of the classroom.
If a kid has not been picked up 15 minutes after the scheduled end time of an event, please bring the kid(s) to a Parkway Kids Staff Member at Preschool Check In.

Closing a Classroom
(This is to be done when a classroom will not be open during any other service times.)
Empty all trashcans.
Put all leftover supplies back in the supply box.
Clean up toys and other items.
Disinfect all toys and surfaces kids come in contact with using disinfectant wipes, or spray.
General Reminders
Never be alone with a kid.
Team members under 18 are not allowed in the Babies and Toddlers (under 24 months) classrooms.
Monitor the kid's environment and report any suspicious activity to a Parkway Kids Staff Member immediately.
Be aware of any special notes indicated on the kid's name tag. (i.e. allergies, medical conditions)
Hot liquids of any kind (coffee, tea, hot chocolate, etc.) are not allowed in the classroom.
Press "1" on the phone in each of the classrooms in order to contact a Parkway Kid's Staff member.
Social Media Guidelines
If There is a Behavior Problem (i.e. disrespect, disruption, aggression, etc.)

First time:

Give a verbal warning that if the kid has to be corrected one more time they will lose their free-play time at the end of class. When doing this be sure to get down on the kid's level and look into their eyes and speak to them in a loving and calm manner.
Second time:

Loss of free-play time.
Third time:
The leader needs to make the parents aware of the situation when they come pick up the kid, and report the incident to a Parkway Kids Staff Member.
Fourth time:
A Parkway Kids Staff Member has a conversation with the kid and the parents together.
Fifth time:

The kid sits out of Sunday programming for 2 weeks.
Immediately contact a Parkway Kids Staff Member if a kid is physically aggressive with another kid.
Press "1" on the phone in each of the classrooms in order to contact a Parkway Kids Staff Member.
If a Kid Becomes Ill
If a child has a runny nose (green in color), persistent cough, fever, or rash, we will ask the parent to keep their kid with them. If you notice this during the service times please notify a Parkway Kids staff member and we will contact the parent.
If you notice a child is sick during check-in, please tell the parent dropping off the following: "Your child looks like they might not be feeling well. If you could give me just a minute, I would like one of our Parkway Kids Staff Members to make sure your child is well enough to come and play with the other children in our class today. Thank you"
If a kid begins vomiting, an adult leader should escort the kid to the restroom away from the other students while remaining calm and comforting. Use the phone in the room to contact a Parkway Kids Staff Member and alert them to the situation. The Parkway Kids Staff Member will bring the appropriate cleaning supplies and handle contacting the parent/guardian.
If a Kid Becomes Injured
Minor Injuries

Most minor injuries can be treated with a little tender loving care, a cool cloth and a Band-Aid.
Small First Aid kits are available in each room in the resource cabinet.
You CANNOT treat with any medication of any kind (i.e. alcohol cleaning wipes, antibiotic cream, etc.)
When a kid is treated, please complete an "Ouch Report" and have a Parkway Kids Staff Member sign the report before the kid is picked up. When the parent arrives, please let them know what happened and ask them to sign the "Ouch Report". The parent then receives the copy of the "Ouch Report" labeled "Parent".
A staff member will follow up with the parent, if necessary, the following week.
It is important to remember that we are not authorized to dispense any over the counter or prescription medications.

In the event a kid needs more attention than we can provide, please notify a Parkway Kids Staff Member by using the phone, and the parent will be notified.
Emergency Procedure
As soon as the Fire Alarm sounds, IMMEDIATELY follow evacuation procedures.
Take the clipboard by the door and emergency kit and prepare the class to evacuate.
Follow the fire evacuation route posted next to the door in your classroom.
One leader should lead the kids out while another leader stands at the door counting the number of kids in your care.
After all kids have been counted, check under any furniture, bathrooms, or other areas where a kid could hide.
Walk your kids to the area designated on the evacuation plan posted next to your door.
Once all leaders have arrived, if possible, have your kids sit on the ground and count them to make sure that every kid is accounted for.
All check-out procedures will be placed on hold
until you have reached the secure location and all children have been accounted for.
If parents arrive to pick up a child, follow the same procedure as in a classroom. No child is to be released from your care without a matching tag.

If parents arrive to pick up a kid, follow the same procedure as in a classroom. No kid is to be released from your care without a matching tag.
Missing Kid
Remove all distractions, music, video, etc. and make an announcement in the classroom calling for the kid's name. Ask kids and leaders in the room to help you look under furniture, in closets, bathrooms, etc.
If the child is not found, your classroom will go into lock down. Station a volunteer at each door not allowing anyone in or out of the room.
Notify a Parkway Kids Staff Member immediately. The Parkway Kids Staff Member will notify the parent of the situation.
If a kid is still not found, the entire wing or area of the church will be put in lock down. Each room in the area will be checked for the missing kid.
